PETALING JAYA: National mixed doubles coach Jeremy Gan has decided to pair up Chan Peng Soon and Lai Pei Jing as he believes the pair have what it takes to make an impact.
Peng Soon is currently ranked sixth in the world with Goh Liu Ying but that partnership has been put on hold following the latter’s decision to undergo knee surgery. She is expected to be out of action for at least six months.
The 21-year-old Pei Jing meanwhile has been paired with Tan Aik Quan for the past three years and the duo were ranked as high as No. 15 in the world last May.
